She's made a career out of baring all in sexy photoshoots and flashing the flesh on the front of men's magazines.
And despite having a figure most women would be envious of, Nicola McLean has admitted there is not one part of her body she likes.
Posing totally naked in an un-airbrushed photoshoot, the former glamour model spoke out about her body issues, explaining she can't stand what she sees when she looks in the mirror.
Baring all: Nicola McLean posed nude as she revealed her body insecurities in a frank new interview
She told Now magazine: 'I don’t love anything about myself. I hate my eyes – they’re too small and I have a squint. I’m really ugly without make-up, so I always wear it. It makes me feel more confident. I have such bad body dysmorphia.
'I was bullied at school for being ugly and it stayed with me. I changed everything I hated about myself, like my teeth, boobs and hair, but I still don’t love anything – only the fake bits.'
In addition to undergoing two breast enlargement procedures, the 31-year-old star has regular Botox, hair extensions and Lipoglaze, as well as having veneers fitted to her teeth after they eroded away following her battle with anorexia and bulimia.

Although the mother-of two has since overcome the eating disorders she suffered two years ago, she admitted she looks at pictures of herself as a size six and thinks she looks 'really good'.
Opening up in the frank new interview, Nicola explained she eventually realised she needed help when her GP threatened to section her, and although she is still not a 'normal eater', she now sees a therapist to help her overcome her issues with food.
Speaking about her eating disorders and how they affected her marriage to footballer husband Tom Williams, she told Now magazine: 'I was erratic, hungry, sad and lonely. Tom didn’t fancy me. He walked on eggshells around me. It was strained. We definitely didn’t have sex as much.'
Posing nude with just her hands protecting her modesty, Nicola bravely showed off her body in its natural, un-airbrushed form.
The Celebrity Big Brother star then described her figure in her own words, admitting she 'hates' her stomach and bottom after having her two sons, Rocky, six, and Striker, two.
